Furniture was the number one search in July; this is partially a result of increased movement this time of year. Many families move over the summer to get ready for the new school year. They’re looking for bargains and interesting pieces to furnish their homes or apartments. As a result, many are buying from flea markets and antiques shops –some for the first time. These buyers check prices in to help them understand the market better and make educated purchases.

The price guide can be used for a wide range of purposes. However, people primarily use it to estimate the value of their possessions or to determine what the price should be of items they’re buying or selling. While these 10 items were the most popular among price guide users in July, this does not necessarily mean that other antiques are becoming less popular.
